Division of Whole Numbers: Long Division

4th Grade • 1 Lesson Plan

Lesson Plan Description

Interactive partner practice helps our 4th graders demonstrate a “true” understanding of the complex process of long division.  Use this lesson for review and practice of this complicated skill.  Your students will:

  • Collaborate with peers to practice the “language” of division and attend to precision
    • Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others
    • Model with mathematics
  • Utilize prior division knowledge to practice the traditional algorithm for dividing with one digit divisors
  • Find whole-number quotients and remainders with up to four-digit dividends and one-digit divisors
  • Use strategies based on place value, the properties of operations, and/or the relationship between multiplication and division
  • Practice the algorithm for dividends up to 4 digits in size
  • Complete an exit slip to help you determine next instructional steps
